Cyclist Killed in Vehicle Collision in Northwest Dallas

Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams

Many of us take to our bicycles to enjoy the scenic view our state offers. We also enjoy the exercise value that comes from riding your bicycle. But riding a bicycle can be a dangerous endeavor if vehicles are not paying attention and obeying the rules of the road. Bicycles do not afford the same protection that other vehicles do. The Dallas bicycle accident lawyers at Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC want to talk to you about a tragic bicycle accident.

What Happened in This Dallas Bicycle Accident?

According to officials, in December 2019, a vehicle traveling on Loop 12 near Interstate 35E struck and killed a bicyclist. The bicyclist, unfortunately, died on the scene.

This is all too common in Dallas when it comes to bicycle safety and accidents involving vehicles. According to Texas government statistics, from 2010 to 2017, there were:

  • 16,807 crashes in Texas involving bicycles, resulting in 8,769 injuries, 5646 possible injuries, and 362 fatalities.
  • Eleven percent of cyclists involved in crashes are younger than 15, and another 13 percent are between 16 to 25.
  • Two-thirds of bicycle crashes occurred on city streets.

Riding a bicycle in Dallas can be a dangerous activity if other vehicles are not paying attention and obeying the rules of the road.
